His service as Chair is a different matter. If we had a real County Chair instead of the untalented Mitch Ford, we could afford Frank at the City level. Since Mitch's incompetence overshadows everything, we cannot Frank. Not really Frank's fault since replacing Mitch would solve 90% of our problems.
Lastly, you will soon hear that Assemblyman Brindisi helped get Alex Torres fired. If the GOP puts up an opponent, we will have to Primary the Assemblyman since neither Mitch nor Frank can steer us through this one. It is Mitch's fault we are not competing in multiple races. He has also not done enough fundraising to keep the GOP busy. I do not expect Frank to do those things.
Two brothers, Paul and Steven Mancuso, are accused of falsifying air quality reports regarding their asbestos removal projects in and around the town of Utica, New York. If convicted, Steven Mancuso could face up to five years in state prison and a $250,000 fine. Paul Mancuso, if convicted of operating an illegal disposal business, could be sentenced to fifty-five years in state prison and fines totaling $2.5 million.

Reports issued by the New York bureau of the U.S. Attorney's office show that the brothers, along with associates Frank Meola and Mark Yozzo, doctored the paperwork required by the Environmental Protection Agency for companies conducting asbestos abatement and cleanup projects.

Meola and Yozzo are scheduled to testify in court this week regarding the laboratory samples of air in the area that they took from the sites of demolished businesses, schools, health clinics and homes. Federal prosecutors allege that the men forged the tests in order to hide the inferior precautions taken at the locations where the Mancuso brothers' company carried out the asbestos disposal.

Craig Benedict, the federal attorney handling the prosecution, stated that Yozzo would tell the judge about how Paul Mancuso requested his help in administering air-sampling tasks tied to the company's asbestos removal projects. Benedict also said that Yozzo learned how to take the air samples as he watched Meola carry out the jobs. The problem, according to Benedict, is that Meola was not using the proper procedures for the tests, thus Yozzo never learned how to complete the tests the right way.

Prosecutors have also stated that the brothers and their alleged co-conspirators used various methods to manipulate air-testing documents required by the EPA. One particular instance shows how data written on an EPA form was covered in white correction fluid and written over by another party. Another case shows a document with a piece of paper glued over it that showed different data than the original tests. On several occasions, Yozzo's signature would appear on a document that recorded data at a test site where he was not present.

In opening statements on the case, Benedict and other prosecutors maintain that the brothers conducted asbestos remediation jobs across the area that were both illegal and unsafe. Benedict said that the case was about how the defendants continued "lying, cheating and deceiving" on a regular basis, both to government officials and to their clients with regard to asbestos levels present at the sites they worked. He also stated that Steven Mancuso, an attorney by trade, allegedly wrote falsified legal papers that hid his brother's role in the company. Paul Mancuso had been convicted in 2003 of violating the federal Clean Air Act and was prohibited from conducting asbestos removal operations.

and in ALL fairness, you should check your TAINTED sources. Joseph Marino could knock your socks off with his intelligence. There is NO comparing frank meola to Joe Marino Meola is a loud mouth and a felon. He is not too bright upstairs. His association with those Mancuso brothers tells the story. He was not jjust an Innocent bystander...and those are facts.

Sorry guys, during the campaign I spent more time with that case than should be considered healthy. You may hate me for this but that's ok. Mr. Meola, even as a felon, is more valuable to this city than Joe Marino.
I have also watched hours of tape on Marino. Intelligent is not a word that should be thrown in his direction. His other problem is he talks a lot without following through - see the ethics charges that have not been filed 3 weeks later like he promised.
You reall are a brown noser, plus the fact that it is so OBVIOUS that You OWE him!!!!!!!!!!

2 things:
1.) You do realize that the oh so moral and oh so intelligent Mr. Marino not only helped Mr. Meola get into his current position, but campaigned for him last cycle, right?? So obviously, Mr. Marino must think positively regarding Mr. Meola.
2.) If you think I owe Mr. Meola anything, please read anything I have written about his performance as Chair. Yes, I dislike Mitch Ford much more because he is totally useless but Mr. Meola as Chair has not exactly pleased me.
He may have helped him get into the position, but that was before he found out what a nut case he is. You , on the other hand KNOW NOTHING about Marino, so stop chastising him. He is BRILLIANT next to Meola! Bottom line!!!!!

Marino has played Meola at every level. He played him into going against his own mother-in-law to get the endorsement in 2011. Now Marino has entirely taken over the power of the council while Meola has become all but irrelevant and a laughing stock in the community.

Marino knows what he's doing. He is smart and patient. He has out strategized these wannabe clowns at every move and will take them down when the time is right. Sit back and watch the show.

You have to watch it to believe it.
First, they called it a "special meeting". So that draws an OML complaint.(I know - yawn)
Then, Marino claimed he never sponsored the mess so there was no sponsor. Suddenly, LoMedico, he of the IQ hovering around 80 decided to sponsor it. Dave Testa would later second.
Because the next meeting was set for the 16th, where it is somehow already on the agenda without a sponsor at the time it was placed, it was judged by the judge, God he's lost, to be "illegal". Over, he wanted to vote it down.
Marino yells at the judge, the judge says incoherent things, LoMedico yells at Marino, Marino promises Armageddon, Testa yells at Marino. Back and forth like this for an hour.
Then, they voted not to recommit it. Following that, they voted it down. 5-4 both times, but it's still on the agenda and could be in a public hearing on May 7th.
After the votes, they let the neighbors speak.
If you got distracted by that mess, you missed all the games being played with Employment in the Engineering Department.
You talk with fork tongue and seem to have some hang ups with other peoples intelligence and IQ'S. WHAT's YOURS?

In all fairness you Uticans often look at people who can add 7 and think they're "intelligent" because 99% of all Uticans are impressed by the slightest skill. I don't see any of these people as being very intelligent at at otherwise they'd be in the private sector making money not being wannabees and having to commit asbestos removal crimes, adultery and disorganized crime to get by.
